We were two families with children of varying ages and there was plenty to do for all of us. The pool and jacuzzi area was luxurious and clean as was the house itself. The house is well appointed and very modern with comfortable beds and all amenities. A very good internet connection kept the kids happy and allowed us to share wonderful pictures of Fresse-sur-Moselle and the surrounding areas. There are lovely walks around the area starting right on the doorstep and we also took the opportunity to visit Freiburg in Germany, Mulhouse in France and Brunnen in Switzerland. This holiday home provided the perfect base for those excursions and it was a welcome place to return too. We had a wonderful stay here and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

So close to the cycle path, walks and amenities. The chalet was clean, comfortable & quiet, and the pool was wonderful at the end of a day of touring. Karine & her Maman made us feel very welcome & provided lots of information on the local area and walks. Thank you for a lovely holiday. John & Barbara
